Russia’s hidden hand in the Florida pipeline protests was extensive, according to sources familiar with the operations. At least eight Russian accounts, most tied to the troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency, sent at least 16 social media messages excoriating the Sabal Trail pipeline or retweeting messages from one of its most prominent opponents, a frequent guest on RT. The tweets were sent to a total of more than 40,000 followers as well as anyone else who saw them via hashtags.
This is just one example of Russian manipulation of useful Green idiots. The Russians do a lot of this in Canada, too.
If we’re worried about Russian election shenanigans, we should be equally concerned about this tampering. It’s gone on longer, involved more money, is intended to reduce US national security and divide Americans, while boosting Russian oil revenues and world-political influence.
